VIDEO: Prop. 8 plaintiffs Kris Perry and Sandy Stier honored at the #glaadgala in SF

GLAAD recognized Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, lead plaintiffs in Hollingsworth v. Perry the landmark case that struck down California’s Proposition 8, with the Presidential Local Hero Award at the GLAAD Gala San Francisco: Game Changers. Peter Paige, the executive producer of The Fosters, presented the award to Perry and Stier. Watch the video below:

"Almost five years ago we prepared for the first and hopefully last trial we will ever be a part of! That trial changed our lives forever; a trial where I shared my experience of growing up gay in California's conservative Central valley and how harmful feeling less than was to me," said Perry in her prepared remarks to accept the award. "I also testified about the development of all children and how transformational simply being accepted is in all of our lives. The power of choice, inclusion and acceptance is life changing, and critical to reaching one's full potential. I think we can all agree that everyone deserves a fair shot at a happy life."

GLAAD Gala San Francisco: Game Changers recognizes national and Bay Area leaders advancing LGBT equality through the media and also funds GLAAD's national advocacy work to rewrite the script for LGBT equality.
